About Don Jon
Respected indie actor and occasional romcom leading man Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes his directorial debut with a film which is both lightweight and thought-provoking. Don (Levitt) is a slick-haired, buff-bodied New Jersey everyman. His passions in life include taking care of his car, chasing girls and watching pornography. When he meets typical Jersey princess-type Barbara (Scarlett Johansson), he is instantly drawn to her swimsuit model looks. But Barbara wants more than a casual fling and insists that they embark on a proper relationship. Don's family think she is perfect but their new relationship is jeopardised when Barbara realises that Don finds watching pornagraphy more satisfying than sex. A woman (Julianne Moore) from Don's night class seems more sympathetic, but is it time for Don to acknowledge that he has a problem?
